Accurate: I assume you mean a pregnancy US? It is very accurate in terms of identifying and dating a pregnancy. Please be more specific with regards to what information you are questioning as accurate.

Accurate at what?: A 14 week ultrasound is excellent at noting how far along you really are. It is not very good a picking up details of fetal anatomy (a lot is still changing at this time) but can pick up signs that something is not going well and can lead to the need for further testing

Gender determination: In one study, an accuracy rate of assigning fetal gender was found to be 98% by angle of 30 degree studies and 92% by baby scans at the 14 week point. However, the percentages won’t matter much, if your fetus’ gender was incorrectly classified & that was particularly important to you. Sometimes it is hard to determine.

Quite accurate: By 12 weeks, the fetus is fully formed. All its organs, muscles, limbs and bones are in place, and the sex organs are well developed. So 16 week gender ultrasound is quite accurate. Congratulations and all the best
